AISH Seminars and Institutes

The Academy for International School Heads (AISH) offers a variety of professional development opportunities throughout the year.

Presented annually in February, this one of a kind event brings AISH members together with other guests offering a professional development session on a specific topic, luncheon, and the annual meeting. In 2017, it took place at the French American School in San Francisco on February 6. The presenter was Dr. Mark Milliron, Co-Founder and Chief Learning Officer for Civitas Learning and his presentation was "Moving into the Next Generation of Learning."

REFLECT, CONNECT, RENEW. This 5-day seminar is open to all school heads, directors, and deputy heads. AISH members and non-members are welcome. Special guest presenters Teresa Arpin and Azul Torrenez facilitated a workshop titled "Powerful Learning/Powerful Leading." HEADtalks, and home group facilitators make this a truly unique event designed specifically for International School Heads and Deputy Heads. It took place July 10-14, 2017 at the Wylie Inn in Beverly, MA, USA. In 2018, it is planned to take place in Germany.

Is an international headship in your future? You can develop the skills you need at the annual AISH New and Aspiring Heads Institute. This 2-day event brings both new and aspiring Heads together to learn how the process of securing a position as an International School Head works; what the most essential skills to focus on are as a school Head; how the Headship is different from the Principalship; what to do in the first 100 days; and what the most common pitfalls are for a new school Head. It will take place in July 2018 at the Courtyard Marriott Boulder/Louisville, CO.  Colorado Front Range

AISH often presents one-day pre-conference workshops and seminars at many regional events throughout the year. All seminars and workshops offer a specific topic designed for international heads, and aspiring heads. Information about upcoming workshops or seminars at regional association events will be posted to the AISH website as they are scheduled.
